Amplified youth and childrens voices for behavior change communication and policy change

The project aims to provide children and youth in the Kakuma refugee camp with opportunities to express their dreams and challenges through music, drama and painting. It is about providing a safe space for psychosocial support, by participants being listened to and encouraged to express their feelings. By including children and youth from both the camp and surrounding communities, the project aims to contribute to increased social cohesion. By communicating the artistic output through various channels – e.g. community forums, murals, social media – local officials, leaders are expected to gain a deeper understanding of challenges facing youth and policy change!
